Source: 21 Clemson football players positive for COVID-19 in latest testing

Of 28 positive coronavirus tests conducted on Clemson student-athletes and staff since their return to campus two weeks ago, 23 belong to football players, a source said Friday.

The state of South Carolina on Friday reported its highest number of total positive tests -- 1,081 people -- and highest percentage of positive tests to date.

The rate of positive tests at Clemson this month is nearly double the national average.

The initial 169 tests were done upon the return to campus for student-athletes and staff from football and basketball.

According to the school, the majority of those testing positive were asymptomatic, and no one has thus far required hospitalization.

Each member of the program who tested positive was notified by the school and will be isolated for at least 10 days.
